On Friday, the Enforcement Directorate revealed that the crucial information has been revealed by Manish Sisodia during his custody as they seek the extension of former Delhi’s deputy chief minister’s remand in connection with the Excise Policy scam case.
They further revealed that they even issued summons to Rahul Singh, former Excise Commissioner as well as the then Secretary, C Aravind among many more. As per the statement given by ED, they will be questioned along with Sisodia.
Meanwhile, Special Judge MK Nagpal on Friday stated that both sides’ submission saw the reserve order on remand application of ED. The order will be passed sometime today. In another news, Sisodia’s Senior Advocate, Mathur opposed the remand application of ED.
In his statement, Mohit stated that, “This change of phone was part of the CBI remand and is now the part of ED application. Personal liberty is paramount. The court is the custodian of our liberty. My liberty is at your hand. During 7 days of custody, they had only 4 people to be confronted. Confrontation need not custody.”
Advocate Zohaib Hossain, who appeared for the ED, submitted massive amounts of mail along with mobile data, all of which are being forensically analysed. The mobile phone of Sisodia, which he had been using for a long time was replaced the day LG wrote to the CBI.
ED’s counsel claimed that the statements were validated by the recovery of data from the arrestee’s computer. According to ED, mobile data, email data, and cloud data were also received during the interpretation.
Previously, the Enforcement Directorate stated that the act of proactive destruction of evidence leads to only one inference: Manish Sisodia made conscious efforts to destroy evidence of the offence of money laundering, while seeking remand of Manish Sisodia in connection with the Excise Policy case.
